The Gaslamp Quarter and Little Italy have opened more patio dining to spread out amid the coronavirus pandemic. The goal is to offer more dining to patrons while maintain social distancing. Both neighborhoods are walking distance from The Bristol Hotel.
Little Italy was the first in the area to implement this new al fresco dining experience by shutting down part of India Street the past couple of weekends. About 20 restaurants in the area have extended their patios from 4:00pm – 10:00pm on Saturday’s. The Little Italy Association hopes to expand the program soon to include 15 additional restaurants and adding Friday nights as well.
Gaslamp Quarter followed suit last weekend by shutting down a stretch of Fifth Avenue to allow bars and restaurants to extend their outdoor spaces onto the sidewalks and pavement. Running Thursday through Saturday’s, the curbside dining program could continue until the end of the year, and eventually include dozens of restaurants.
Some restaurants currently participating in the Gaslamp Quarter:
· Rustic Root
· Café Sevilla
· Havana 1920
Some restaurants currently participating in Little Italy:
· Civico 1845
· Buon Appetito
· Cloak & Petal
· Isola Pizza Bar
